How to Get More DoneAug 01, 2023
Get That To Do List Checked Off
People often ask me how I manage to do everything I do. Host a podcast. Make videos. Do weekly live streams. Write articles for my audience. Market my services. Find new leads. Send auditions. Book voice overs. Renovate my house. Hang out with family. Spend 16 hours smoking a brisket. Make an appearance daily on all the social networks, etc... etc... etc...
Want to know the secret? I focus on one thing at time.
4 Steps to Getting Things Done
Each day I know what needs to get done.
- I set goals.
- I set priorities.
- I set time blocks.
- I cross off one at a time.
I’ll also confidently proclaim, this method has allowed me to accomplish far more than I never did when I was doing ten things at once. I learned the hard way that multitasking isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. I’d rather accomplish five things wholly and well than ten things partially and with mediocrity.
Less Overwhelm... More Productivity
If you're feeling overwhelmed by everything your business requires, do the same thing for yourself. It works. Trust me!
Filter your To Do list through the lens of your goals. Prioritize what remains. When you force yourself to rank your list numerically, you’ll quickly discover what the real priorities are.
Non negotiable time blocks in your calendar means you’re doing the thing, no matter what.
Each item crossed off the list builds momentum that’ll help you get through the next task, and the one after that and the on after that…
It may sound overly simplistic, but it works.
